How to Plan a Cheap Hen Do

How to Plan a Cheap Hen Do

A big part of being in charge of organising the hen party is making sure everything fits into your groups budget. A cheap hen do doesn't have to mean skimping on the good stuff! We have a ton of experience when it comes to hen party budgeting, and the first rule of thumb is always communication.

Make sure you know how much money all the attendee's are willing to pay before you start looking at options. After all, the last thing you’ll want to do is go way above everyone’s budget and end up with many unhappy hens!

After speaking to the girls and figuring out everyone's ideal budget, the next thing to do is find the right time to celebrate. Often, these celebrations take place over a long weekend (Friday-Monday), but some hens still choose to celebrate during the week too.

It would be wise to find out which days would work best for the rest of the girls and start looking at dates.

How to Save Money on your Hen Do

Keeping to a budget and sticking with budget-friendly activities are fundamental to hosting a cheap hen do, but there are always ways to save a few pennies when you’re out celebrating:

  • Hosting pre-drinks at your own house or accommodation
  • Head to bars advertising good drinks deals (£1 Jaegerbombs? Yes, please!)
  • Eat before you go out and have some food ready for when your night out is done to avoid expensive takeaways

Keeping the participant numbers low will also make a difference; If you’re only planning on inviting a few people along, these tips on hen parties for small groups will surely help you further.
